That is a beautiful buck ESOX!!  I'm usually lucky enough to pick up the same bucks year after year as long as they aren't just rut roamers, but this year I "lost" 3 of my biggest bucks.  Not sure if they died or just moved areas.  Sad year

Scout, shhhh!  There are no deer up north.  This is the biggest I’ve had on camera.  Had him at 50 yards during muzzleloader but too dark to shoot, couldn’t see my iron sights.  This was 2016.  Didn’t see him again the next year.

Scoutking I only had one picture of this buck during the rut. My friend and I spent two weekends looking for his sheds with no luck. 

last 2 years I had issues with cameras getting stolen in this area. I did have two cameras in an area and got a picture of a guy baiting near a stolen camera. Do u run into this problem. I now run less cameras in this area but I know big deer are around

We have 3 left sides off this buck and all are within an inch or two of each other.  The sheds in the photo below are from the buck when we believed him to be 5 and 6 years old.  My father was lucky enough to take him during archery season the following year and the photo shows the shed from the previous year next to his rack.  The rack is actually a bit smaller than the shed from the previous year but almost identical.

Holy moly Mountainwi, that buck has some serious tine length.  I'm wondering if his tines are so long that they make his rack look thinner than it is.  Certainly looks like a mature deer, big body and full chest/neck.  Not all mature bucks up there gain mass, some definetly do as they gain age, but we have watched multiple bucks that remained within +/- 5" for years after reaching maturity.  Do you know if that buck is still roaming?

This bucks has lots of length but not much mass. Is this odd for this area Scout King? My mature bucks usually have mass

Scoutking,  

i got 2 pictures of this guy in 2012 on the same day one in the morning and another at night checking this scrape along a swamp edge.  Never heard of him getting shot or did I get another picture of him.
